Jane Milton

In this issue of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy we warmly welcome Richard Rusbridger as new Book Reviews Editor, with many thanks to our retiring editor, Denis Carpy.

Turning to the papers: our first three papers focus on psychotherapeutic work with young people in the public sector. Miller discusses work with students struggling with oedipal conflicts in the process of transition from adolescence to adulthood. Her clearly presented theoretical ideas, well illustrated clinically, should prove useful to others in their work. Lanyado and her colleagues then give an account of an extended therapeutic consultation with a 12-year-old boy, abused himself, who had abused another child. This disturbing and difficult, but important, work is part of a large-scale research project, funded by the Department of Health, which seeks to further understanding about the predicaments of such children. Baruch's paper is also about an important research project. A full account is given of work in progress on a comprehensive audit of the work of a psychotherapy service for young people, including evaluation of outcome.

Werbart writes from the perspective of ten years’ experience within a Swedish therapeutic community for patients with psychosis and severe personality disorder. Longitudinal prospective case-studies and comparison with other more traditional units illustrate the beneficial effects of the work, and also some of the inevitable limitations encountered.

Finally, Winship gives us a comprehensive overview of the relationship between psychoanalysis and nursing, now and in the past. This paper comes in the context of a welcome strengthening of the nursing subcommittee of the APP, which seeks to address this fraught but potentially so creative relationship.
